    That's funny, i think it is about a person's backbone when it comes to begging..

    like bumping a thread, that's like cutting the line, i wonder why people think it is "OK" to do it in a forum


    What does that means? So it is ok for you to do, but not EGS?

    All I meant was:
    He was new here - does that make it OK per say? Not really, but a NEW person can make mistakes, and learn off it... and im sure he has!

    I never ask for reps on threads cause its dangerous so I do not ask for reps in my signature either. But mutual tit for tat policy i follow for sure.

    Whenever I see "rep me", I slap them with a red rep.
    "Congrats, you got repped :) "

    Begging is begging is begging. Is it a classy thing to do? NO. Does it work? Yeah... if it didn't begging which is ARGUABLY the oldest profession or atleast one of them would of died out long ago. It's here to stay. :cool:

    I think asking for rep in your signature smacks of desperation. I'll give green rep to someone who is giving something away, and I don't object too much if I've asked for info about a freebie and the person asks for rep in a PM - at least they're doing something to get rep instead of just asking for it :)

    If a post is useful or entertaining it will get rep without needing prompting, IMO.

    I don't think it's ethical to beg for reps, but if you're just reminding someone that they can rep somebody, then that is a different matter.

    Personally I think that people should give reps more freely, and I do not mind general reminders. When people outright ask for rep though I tend to never give it, and if they 'beg' I generally consider giving bad rep.

    I saw someone with a sig that said something like "Have you given someone rep today" and I liked it (I even added something like it to my sig for a while). I think a reminder is good now and again, as it, well, reminds me there is rep enabled on this forum. But I think asking for it personally, or begging for it is just bad form.

    That means that I used to do that earlier, that post you referenced was posted on the same month in which I joined DP, but later I learned that I shouldn't do it, and stopped it immediately. It isn't okay for me or anyone to do that and I'll say that the matter I posted in that post which you quoted was throughly unethical on my part. But since I have stopped doing it, I believe I am not at fault anymore.

    Therefore, get a life, oh and someone left me red rep on that thread, I think it was either you or EGS, but whoever it was, I'll say the same thing again "Get a life".

    I ignore open appeals for reps. I do give green reps (often) for two reasons:

    1. For a helpful or interesting post.

    2. For directory owners allowing free listings. That helps those of us with little or no budget.
